Cape Town, South Africa (PressExposure) September 06, 2013 -- Julian Moses, president of Symphony Trade and Investment 57 (Pty) Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Eccotopia Ltd., has announced that Eccotopia and Pacific Tree West, in joint venture for the marketing, development and implementation of Megafolia¬© tree plantations worldwide, are considering various locations within the Kingdom of Swaziland for the further development of their plantation projects. The Kingdom of Swaziland is a landlocked country in southern Africa, bordered to the north, south and west by South Africa, and to the east by Mozambique.
Swaziland's economy is diversified, including agriculture, forestry and mining, the manufacturing of textiles, and sugar-related processing. The Swazi economy is very closely linked to the South African economy, from which it receives over 90% of its imports and to which it sends about 70% of its exports. Swaziland's other key trading partners are the United States and the EU, from whom the country has received trade preferences for apparel exports.
The Megafolia¬© tree has been designed to provide a particularly broad variety of uses including the phytoremediation of ground water and topsoil. Megafolia¬© trees are also an excellent source for the production of biofuel, the production of timber from which a wide variety of timber products can be developed, biomass-to-energy production, as well as for carbon sequestration. The broad range of uses for this fast-growing tree will enable the formation of a wide variety of new job possibilities in any regions in which Megafolia¬© plantations are established.
Upon the successful implementation of projects, Eccotopia founded and developed on the basis of over 30 years of research and development in the fields of forestry, farming, business and agricultural investments with a focus on sustainability, will have the exclusive marketing and development rights in specified geographic territories or regions, including the Republic of South Africa.
